Why does this strawberry taste like nail polish remover?

So my mom got a container of strawberries so when we got home I cut them and tasted them and it taste like nail polish remover! So i asked my mom to taste it and i didn’t tell her what it taste like so the first thing she did was spit it out and she said it taste like nail polish remover! So i know it wasn’t just me! She got it from Target and the brand is Driscoll’s if that helps.Can someone tell me if they know why it taste like this and if it is safe to eat? Thanks for reading this. 🙂

  • The pesticides or fertilizer used is a leftover. Even if you wash them, the flavor is already absorbed. Ideally strawberries can be one of the highest carriers of residual pesticides. If possible, but organic or use a different brand.

  • Who cares if they’re safe to eat? They taste like nail polish remover.

  • So you know what nail polish remover tastes like? ewwwwwwwwww…….

  • Mine are going out

  • we also got the same brand and had the same issue, really gross, got ours from sam’s club panama city fl

  1. I just got a package from target too. And they’re Driscoll and they taste the same. I googled it and this is the first thing that popped up.
